Fishing Trips and Prices for the 2024-25 Season

Rates quoted are in $NZD and inclusive of Goods & Services Tax (GST). These prices are valid from October 1st 2024 and are subject to change without prior notice.

My guided fishing season runs from October 1st to April 30th. 

NB: A minimum of two days guided fishing is required to secure a booking.

(If you only want a single guide day, you can contact me at short notice, and I may be able to help if I’m not guiding other anglers at that time)


NZD$1295.00 per day for 1 or 2 persons

The Base Guide Rate applies to Day Trips out of Reefton.

In addition to some excellent local-river fishing, there are also many places we can fish using a helicopter for access. Please note that all helicopter charter fees are in addition to this rate.


If you would like to arrange a Campout or undertake a Road Trip away from Reefton, please contact me directly and we can discuss it. There are many options and I will work with you to put together a trip to suit your abilities and aspirations.

NB: On Campouts or Road Trips, anglers will be responsible for meeting all additional food, accommodation and fuel expenses. 


For anglers requiring transfers to and from Reefton, either from Christchurch or Nelson Airports, please discuss your requirements with me and I can assist with suitable arrangements.
